Nemesis Eterna is a strange and wonderful narrative sci-feature that has arisen from the ashes of several short film projects, an abandoned autobiographical novel and the realites of filmaking during a pandemic in a area that has not coped well with it.

Launching a film production company during COVID-19 has obviously forced us to adapt. So we brainstormed what feature could we safely shoot in full isolation mode. Several drafts later, we have a shooting script and a plan to shoot the keeps actors and crew complete apart from each other using remote cameras, CGI and web-cams to avoid any safety or risk issues during film.

We are deeply grateful to ArtsGreensboro for a grant to help fund most of this near-zero budget production. Casting and productions notices as well as dedicated website/social media coming soon.

THE UNTITLED MICHAEL BERN PROJECT
LOST SOULS (Short)

Director & Writer:  Stephen van Vuuren

LoglineA woman's 50-year search for her missing sister resolves when a secret in the shoe her sister lost when she vanished leads the woman to the stars above.

In 2005 we made a short film for online challenge. It turned out well and screened at several regional festivals. But we made the unfornate decision (in hindsight) to shoot with a standard definition camera as that was all our budget (effectively zero) allowed. You can watch that short here.

But to showcase the feature length version of "Lost Souls" (below), Stephen has written as updated script, true to the spirit of the original but setting up the feature that will be shot in 4K DCI anamorphic.

Sheila Duell will reprise her lead role, a new role of her 12 year old sister will be cast and Mickey Flynn and Marie van Vuuren will serve as crew. Production will commence as soon as COVID-19 crisis passes for safe, legal and sane productions.

LOST SOULS (FEATURE)

Director & Writer:  Stephen van Vuuren

LoglineA woman's 50-year search for her missing sister leads her into a complex mystery of missing persons, abandoned shoes, signs in the night sky and the shattering life of a lonely young woman she meets along the way and tries to save.

In 2005 we made a short film for online challenge. It turned out well and screened at several regional festivals. But we made the unfornate decision (in hindsight) to shoot with a standard definition camera as that was all our budget (effectively zero) allowed. You can watch that short here.

The feature version will greatly expand the layers of mystery in our "Iridium Chronicles" universe that "Return", "Lost Souls" and several future project will live in.

Sheila Duell will reprise her lead role, aseveral new roles will be cast and Mickey Flynn and Marie van Vuuren will serve as core crew. Pre-production will commence as soon once the new Lost Souls short (above) is complete.
